An easy, jazz-influenced groove, and a commentary on how, too often, we sabotage our own ability to experience joy, and to love freely and openly. We allow ourselves instead to listen to the voices of fear or doubt that tell us it’s too risky, that we should hide our hearts so we don’t get hurt, that we must have proof before we can believe in something greater, that maybe there’s not enough good to go around. As we believe, so shall it be for us. I say love is ALWAYS available, and ALWAYS worth the risk – because it is who we are.

Lyrics

PRECIOUS LOVE / Susan B. Shann / © 2004

Oh, it’s all the things we never say
That hold us down, stand in our way
Oh, it’s all the times we never try
That keep us grounded, longing for the sky
With open arms, we could embrace the stars above
Instead of being so afraid we might not have enough
Of this precious love…oh, this precious love

Oh, it’s every moment, every chance we lose
To believe in something that we cannot prove
All our cynical lies, every thought concealed
That stop the truth from ever being revealed
With so much to give, why must we ache for something more
Can’t you see we own the very thing we’re longing for

Oh, this precious love…oh, this precious love

It’s not as fragile as we think it is
It’s stronger than we know
We could find our happiness by never letting go
Of this precious love…oh, this precious love

Oh, it’s all the things we never say
That hold us down, stand in the way
Of this precious love
Oh, this precious love
This precious love
